I love me some Melissa McCarthy, almost to an unhealthy point, but this new trailer for Identity Thief doesn't bode well. I was able to write off the first trailer for the flick as goofy since I was still in love with McCarthy's goofy persona (and Rick Ross), but I can't seem to do the same here. Getting to see more of the plot and her mannerisms, I realize that McCarthy was just typecast as the "big goofy, and loud, woman" when I know she's capable of much more than that (you should watch Mike and Molly!)
I'd hate to see her go down that road when there's potential there. Look, watch the trailer, and try to argue that McCarthy wasn't getting annoying. That's right...you can't
